Reddit is a social media site great for OSINT investigation. Since most subreddits are visible to anyone and the internet is full of Reddit investigation tools, the site has become a major source for information.
If you want a basic survey of an account, try these tools:
- https://www.redditinvestigator.com/ – just type in the username you wish to investigate, and the site will generate some basic information, trends, and statistics.
- https://www.redective.com/ – like redditinvestigator but allows you to search for users and subreddits.
Another great way to research is gathering data from subreddits. Use these tools to enhance your search:
- https://www.osintcombine.com/reddit-post-analyser – just copy the post URL and find all the data on that subreddit.
- http://www.yasiv.com/reddit – search a keyword or topic and find a visualization of all the related subreddits. You can access the subreddits or just gather information.
- https://www.redditsearch.io/ – allows an in-depth investigation by using search terms and filters.
